Craig Lammert, MD Executive Director
Everyone’s journey with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) has been different. In fact, that's what makes this disease unique. AIH patients have different ages of onset, different symptoms, different treatments, and different responses. Even among rare diseases, there are few that impact people from all walks of life. ALL AIH IS NOT THE SAME. Yet, there remains a key similarity among those affected: the need to be well.
We formed the AIHA in 2014 not only to support AIH wellness, but provide hope through disease education and giving our patients opportunities to change this disease. Our approach was to invest in getting high quality information to patients and families and pursue a model where patients may actually teach their doctor a thing or two. We want to ensure that all patients, no matter what their circumstances, have the resources to understand their disease and proactively engage in their care team.
